healthy and tasty granola recipe
Homemade granola is so easy to make yourself, and it tastes so much better than store bought. I prefer making my own granola so that I can control exactly how it tastes. I love lots of nuts and seeds, and I use honey instead of sugar.
1 cup rolled oats (not steel cut or quick cooking)
2 cups raw nuts, chopped (eg. almonds, pecans, walnuts, hazelnuts, peanuts)
1 cup raw seeds (sunflower and pumpkin seeds are great)
1 tbsp your favorite spice (eg. cinnamon, pumpkin spice, gingerbread mix)
1 pinch salt
1/2 cup honey
1/4 cup melted butter or coconut oil
Preheat the oven 140C/280F. Line a large baking tray with baking paper. Combine all ingredients in a mixing bowl. Spread on baking tray and bake until golden, approximately 30-40 minutes, stir every 10 minutes. Cool completely. Store in an airtight container or a jar for up to 2 weeks.
We eat our granola on Greek yogurt, with milk like cereal, and just plain for a quick snack.
